ATHLETE/ACTOR OR ACTOR/ATHLETE?

Postby emaja » Tue Dec 23, 2003 1:48 pm

What real life athlete-turned actor turned the tables and as an actor, played an athlete (but not himself) in a movie early in his career?

LT in Any Given Sunday?
I think Jim Brown was in it too, but not very early in his acting career.

I realized after I posted this, it was too ambiguous. So here's a clue.

Early 1970's was the film and he played from 1961-68.

Are you certain it's 61-68 that he played? I know most football movies and I can't find anyone playing in those years.

Burt Reynolds? Was a college football player and he played a football player/felon in a movie that I cannot remember the name.

Eddie Arnold was the Warden and I believe Jim Brown was in it to. The prison team name was The Mean Machine"

did not see the post above before I posted this.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
